Geeky Pancakes

Good morning and welcome to this week's GeekGetup. This week's post is mainly a bunch of pictures. Last night Kiersty and I got a little nerdy with our cooking. We made pancakes in a number of different shapes and sizes.

Kiersty and I filled an empty syrup bottle with pancake mix. We then used it to draw a number of different designs from a few different TV shows. See how many you can guess.



Devils trap: Supernatural

Mabel's star from her t-shirt: Gravity Falls

A pair of glasses. Kiersty says Harry Potter

I'm Batman!

The Avengers. Note that it is backwards. Keep that in mind when making any images with letters or that are non-symmetrical.

A fez. Either from Doctor Who or Gruncle Stan in Gravity Falls. 

It was fun making all of the designs. The thickness of the mix has an effect. You could dye the mix to add color and details. It's a good idea for breakfast fun or even for dinner. I hope you enjoyed this week's post on GeekGetup. Have a happy Thanksgiving and happy holidays.

Duct Tape Body form

Welcome everyone to this weeks GeekGetup. This week was fun because I got to wrap Kiersty in duct tape. That's right, we made a dress form for Kiersty. Some details will be included in this weeks post, but if you want to see how it is done, then go to my YouTube channel HERE to see the video.

A home made body form can be made in a number of different ways. I wrapped Kiersty in plastic wrap before covering her in the duct tape. The plastic wrap was to keep it off of her clothes. You can use paper towels or old clothes instead of plastic wrap if you don't mind losing the clothes.

Interview with Venus

Welcome everyone to GeekGetup. This will be the first of many interviews with Cosplayers from around the world. This week on GeekGetup I am interviewing my cousin Venus. Welcome, Venus!

Hi Jacob. It’s nice to be here.

Thanks again for this. So Venus, could you give us a little background about your cosplay experience?

Well I started cosplaying when I was still in High School. My sister Athena made my first two costumes. They were Sailor V and Cinderella. The first convention I went to was Anime Kiai in Flagstaff.

That’s so cool. Now that you are making a lot of your own costumes, what would you say is your overall skill level?

I would say probably on the high end of beginner. I still have a lot to learn. But I’ve had to learn new things for each of the costumes that I have made. I have also had to make up some of my own patterns. I am nowhere near the advanced level but I might be close to being intermediate level.

Well, again thanks for being here. I am fairly new myself and it is great to see the different perspectives from people of different skill levels. Now you said that your sister made you your first two costumes. When did you decide that you wanted to start cosplaying for yourself?
